Eldar Unit overview/analysis (HQ)

Now that 6th edition and the FAQs are out, I thought it would be a good time to go over EVERY unit in the codex and talk about how they've changed alongside how they can be used in 6th.

This will of course be updated as I get feedback, more experience and as the new Eldar codex comes out (hopefully next year). It will be divided up into several parts covering every unit entry in the codex as well as some basic and advanced Eldar tactics in light of 6th edition. Please feel free to ask any questions you guys might have both specifically and generally as well as anything in particular you guys would like tactics/advice on.
